Some will be eligible for other deferments but about will reclassified 1-a, meaning available for military service. Just How fast they Are reclassified depends on their local draft boards. Some boards re quire student deferments to expire in june others allow them to expire in september. Whether and when these men Are drafted depends on their standing in the lottery held last december. In that lottery All men from 19 to 26 years old were assigned numbers from 1 to 366, corresponding to tie order in which their birthdays were drawn from a big Glass Jar since then selective service has been drafting men by the number first among those in 1-a category. Calling lottery numbers 1 j through 145. Men who now lose deferments become subject to the draft on the basis of this same lottery each month local draft boards search their records for Low numbered men who have recently become available. Selective service statistics indicate that about of the May and june graduates due for 1-a status hold lottery num Bers below 145.
